Owner North Dallas/Richardson
Area Director Tampa/Hillsborough North
Steve MacMeeken owns the Collin County and North Dallas Southern Painting franchises, and recently expanded his role as the Area Director for the Southern Painting office in the Tampa/Hillsborough North area of Florida.
With more than 25 years of hands-on experience as a tradesman, Steve joined Southern Painting in 1993 and by 2000 owned one of the first Southern Painting offices in Texas. Working alongside his brother, Rick, Steve plans on employing his proven methods of business success to help launch Southern Painting into the Florida market.
As a franchise owner, Steve knows that Southern Painting’s success depends upon integrity and customer service, which he has made the cornerstones of his business model. Steve has worked diligently to develop his business to become the largest residential repaint office for Southern Painting in the DFW area.
Steve moved to Collin County in 1981 and before long, met and married Robyn and started their family. He has spent his life creating business opportunities for many people, but most importantly, created an environment that has allowed his two sons and two of his brothers to join the family of Southern Painting. As a true, family-operated business, Steve takes immense pride in serving his customers while continuing to successfully brand the Southern Painting family.

He has an Associate of Arts degree and two years of experience with Sherwin-Williams® in retail painting, sales, and service. With the skill and integrity that Southern Painting is famous for, Preston is committed to being the best ‘go-to’ guy for all your painting and home improvement needs.
Rance Lewis joined the Southern Painting team in mid-2018. Born and raised in Dallas, Rance graduated from Plano Senior High School and has resided in Collin County ever since.
Rance credits his positive outlook on life and the daily smile on his face to the life he has spent living with his sister and her disability. Her relentless pursuit to overcome this in mind, body, and spirit, has encouraged Rance to devote his life to serving God, his family, friends, and community.
Before joining Southern Painting, Rance worked for three years as an Assistant Manager with PPG Pittsburgh Paints® in the retail side of the global coatings industry. This experience with PPG Pittsburgh Paints® allowed him to sharpened his customer service experience, and it is that experience he brings to each Southern Painting customer, pledging to give them the best experience possible.
